Honourable Mention in BWS juried show!

I have just found out that my painting of Denis Keegan 'Artist at Work' has been awarded an 'honourable mention' in the Bayview Watercolour Society "Luminosity' juried show.  The exhibition opens tomorrow, 1pm at the McKay Art Gallery, Main Street, Unionville. It is an exhibition of smaller paintings (half sheet or less) in either watercolour, acrylic or mixed media. 

As I was selecting a couple of paintings to enter into the show I suddenly realised how few smaller paintings I have completed over the last year or so (Only two in fact not counting 'Rations' which sold at the CSPWS open water exhibition last fall and the tiny stretched canvas that I have just finished), most of my work now seems to be full sheet or larger. Its amazing how you just get used to painting a certain size. I think I will have to make an effort to paint some smaller ones too.



  1. Congratulations Ona! I wish I lived close enough to see the show in person. Its a pity you couldn`t enter the Florida watercolor society show.


  2. Congratulations, Ona. Well deserved award.
